Software developers! Let's save the planet! Do you want to work on software that will truly have a global impact? Do you want the freedom to build something new and exciting with a talented team? If you are interested in deep technology, passionate programmer and enthusiastic to keep improving yourself, then let’s get introduced... Hello! We are Altum Technologies. We are saving the world from fouling's disastrous impact with high-power ultrasound, we hope you want to do the same! Simply put, fouling is dirt that gets stock inside industrial equipment like pipes, heat exchangers, tanks, etc. If there is fouling inside the equipment the production plants consume more energy and a huge amount of CO2 goes into the environment, it is a big amount of CO2, equal to 20% of global cars emissions every year. On top of this, industrial equipment is cleaned with toxic chemicals that can harm humans and our water resources. Our high-power ultrasound eliminates all of these environmental hazards while helping entire plants produce more efficiently and without stoppages. For this, we combine traditional ultrasonic techniques and proprietary software with IoT and AI capabilities to create a one-of-a-kind cleantech. We are a 20-person team that has come a long way in the last few months, we released our first product to the market AltumPI in June 2017, won the prestigious Slush 100 pitching competition in December 2017 and in February 2018 we released our Mark III system. Altum Technologies was founded in Helsinki in 2016 and is backed by Venture Capital. Altum Technologies is the first and only company in the world to use focused power ultrasound to remove dirt from industrial equipment with no need for production stoppages and equipment disassembly. The cleaning is done by externally applying our device to any liquid-carrying equipment (heat exchangers, pipes, tanks, cooling towers, filters, reactors, etc.) without the need to do any changes to them or the production process.   Why we need you Now is your opportunity to get on board of one of Finland's hottest startups. We have recently secured our latest investment round, hence rapidly expanding to other markets beyond the Nordics and we need to continue improving and building a world-class software.  We are hiring a software developer(s) who can help us to take Altum Technologies to the next level, someone who is a team player but can also perform individually. We are a startup doing something that no one has done before. So, we need people with initiative as there will be many tasks in which no instruction manual exists yet.   Excited?
